    I've got three of these and your description means nothing to me. Any chance of a pic?

    Rocklers, Hartville Hardware - and probably others - sell the CleanStream® Goretex® filters. The one for the Sears vacs will fit the T2. Probably cost you around $30.00.

    The accessories for my Fein Turbo II came from All Pro Tools in Colton California. They are online. Get their phone number and call them for instructions. The factory-supplied booklet is weak, so I telephoned them.

    Quite knowledgeable and friendly people. Some of my concerns were getting the hose to mate up with Festool machinery. All Pro Tools have done it all.

    Is that HEPA filter the white, pleated canaster? If it is, I have one. I use the Fein to vacuum the house, more than in the shop.

    I always wondered if the 16-foot hose was a necessity. Man, does that thing ever get in the way.
